So we finally got round to exploring Scotland’s most famous road trip, the North Coast 500. We decided that before we shoot off to the other side of the world, we need to take the trip to our own back garden first! During our week-long camping trip around the bonnie highlands, we saw sights that will stick with us for the rest of our lives. If you haven’t heard of the NC500, or simply haven’t been inspired to go, then check out our North Cost 500 – Best Pictures for some serious inspiration!
